Various Sobeys brand packaged vegetables products are being recalled in the Maritimes due to possible Listeria contamination. The Canadian Food and Inspection Agency says the recall includes 19 different Sobeys vegetable products sold in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
The agency says the products include the Sobeys rainbow veggie platter, the bacon broccoli salad and the veggie stir-fry mix. It says all of the recalled items have a best before date of Oct. 7.
Food contaminated with Listeria may not look or smell spoiled, but can still cause vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headaches and neck stiffness. The CFIA says recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.
It says the recall was triggered after one of its inspections, adding that it is conducting a food safety investigation that may lead to more recalls. According to globalnews.ca , the CFIA has stated there have been no reported illnesses from consuming these products.
